Integrated Pest Management

4 months ago

Notification of Pesticide Use:  Our school system may find it necessary to use pesticides to control pests at your school or other school system site.  North Carolina state law gives you the right to be notified annually of our school system’s pesticide application schedule, and 72 hours in advance of pesticide applications made outside that schedule, but the latter only if you request notification ahead of time using the form provided on this site.

Exemptions:  Certain relatively low-risk pesticides are exempted from these notification requirements, including antimicrobial cleansers, disinfectants, self-contained baits and crack-and-crevice treatments, and any pesticide products classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as belonging to the U.S. EPA’s Toxicity Class IV, “relatively nontoxic.”  Your right to be notified extends to all non-exempt pesticide applications at your school or other non-school site (office building, garage, workshop, etc.), both indoor and outdoor pesticide applications, and including applications that take place over summer recess, holidays, weekends, or after school hours.

Emergency Pesticide Use:  In the event that a non-exempt pesticide must be used for a pest control emergency at your school or other site and there is not adequate time to notify you more than 72 hours in advance, and you have requested advance notice, you will receive a notice of emergency pesticide application less than 72 hours before, or as soon as possible after the pesticide application.                                                                                                                                  

To request advanced notification of non-exempt pesticide applications at your school or other site, please return the enclosed form to Your School Site Contact where it will be kept on file until June 30, 2017.  The contact at your school will be notified in the event advanced notification is necessary.  People wishing to receive pesticide use notification for multiple school district sites should submit a form to the IPM manager at each site.  You will need to submit a new copy of this form each year, and every time you wish to update or change your preferred contact information.  Additional copies of this form are available by contacting your site IPM Manager at your school or by contacting Betty Hicks at 693-4613 or by email at hicksbd@gcs.k12.nc.us.

Air Quality Results at JF Webb HS Campus

22 days ago

AIR QUALITY UPDATES:


On Wednesday, October 4, an independent laboratory conducted tests in 30 random locations across the JF Webb High School campus.  We received the official results of these tests on Monday, October 9, which showed a normal indoor fungal ecology in all areas except two hallway locations and the media center, which showed mold spore counts higher than the outside air.  The results of these tests have been posted BELOW.

In the meantime, and as a precaution for our students and staff, we are running air filtration machines in the media center.

In response to these results, we asked the same laboratory to return and conduct an in-depth investigation, along with additional testing the affected areas.  This was completed on Wednesday, October 11.  Those results are also posted below.  


At this time, it has NOT been recommended that staff or students be removed from the building.  Students are being asked to avoid the Media Center while work on the HVAC piping is completed.  Any remediation work will be coordinated to avoid any unhealthy exposure to mold spores in the school.
